There’s something sexy about “raw egg” and “coupe” in the same sentence. While the concept tends to deter the squeamish, this old-world concoction is backed by some serious alchemy and fueled by a new-age revival. A good eggtail is generally made with a fresh, unpasteurized white given a good shake sans ice (also known as “the dry shake”) along with its sister ingredients, allowing the proteins to coagulate for a luscious froth. Ice is then incorporated to cool and slightly dilute the drink, which is strained and served (usually) straight up. Take a look at some of the city’s best takes on this silky-smooth sipper…we’ll spare you the egg puns.
A glittering mix of young art stars, it girls, fashion lovers, models, and art collectors all gathered on Friday night at V in SoHo to celebrate the launch of painter Annika Connor’s new line of luxury art scarves. The new collection, Annika Connor by ShawLux, showcases nine of Connor’s original paintings digitally printed on to cashmere and silk wraps and men’s silk pocket squares. Blending the uniqueness of an original painting with the wearability of a functional and chic accessory, these beautiful creations delighted all. As guests sipped on complimentary vodka cocktails, they gossiped, laughed, and got some early holiday gifting done as they shopped the scarves.
New York is a bubble, and at one point or another, we have to leave for a few moments - often to return with a clear mind and a wealth of curiosity. Embrace the power of getting away for the weekend, whether it's to drink, relax, zone out or work out. We've put together our favorite activities outside of the city that don't cost a fortune (bonus!). Rent a lake house upstate or stay in a haunted hotel on the shores of a river in Pennsylvania. Meet locals, get inspired, and learn the history of these chronicled towns.
Over the weekend, NeueHouse hosted the 2014 Creative Time Fall Ball, featuring art installations and performances by Tom Sachs, Marco Brambilla, Vanity Projects, Robert Pruitt and Will Cotton, as well as musical sets by a variety of talented DJ's and musical performances featuring Sasha Frere Jones and Citizens Band. The eccentric, wild sleepover featured a lazered-out dance party and had Dustin Yellin running around practically naked (see slideshow). Other guests sported their best pajama ensembles (Jon Neidich even brought along a teddy!) to the overnight extravaganza. Guests enjoyed slushie cocktails, cotton candy, and all the best sleepover games: Twister, puzzles, yoga, and more, before heading to bed where an array of perfectly-lined cots were set up for tired party goers. For an inside look at the event, be absolutely sure to check out our slideshow.

It never fails. Every year, around August, we muse romantically about winter—capes, layers, hot lattes. It's all very dreamy until the morning you wake up and realize you are frozen to your bed sheets. The winter weather seems to have hit us early, so it's time to face the lower temps in style. From cashmere scarves to (faux) fur stoles, here are a few of our favorite accessories to keep you looking cool while staying warm this season.
Thanksgiving is one of the best holidays of the year - it's full of laughter, football and, most importantly, food.
